The Natural Resources Board on Wednesday approved the 2019 Wisconsin deer hunting regulations and harvest quotas exactly as presented by the Department of Natural Resources.
Two items are especially notable relative to the season package: for the first time in 10 years, all 72 counties have antlerless permits available; and more county delegations each year are expressing frustration at failures to reduce deer numbers, a trend highlighted in April by the Buffalo County council’s vote for an antlerless-only season.
